  • Notice of 6 Public Meetings for Development of Nonpoint Source Permits on Federal Lands Managed by the United States Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management
    The Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board (Lahontan Water Board) and Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board (Central Valley Water Board) are pursuing the development of nonpoint source permits to ensure regulatory compliance and water quality protection on United States Forest Service (USFS) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) managed lands. Land management activities that may be regulated under the proposed permits include: timber harvesting and vegetation management; motorized and non-motorized recreation; range management, including grazing; stream crossing replacement and upgrades; fire suppression and repair; and road system management.

    The Water Boards will be holding six initial outreach meetings to present information related to the development of the proposed permits and to gather feedback from the public. The same information will be presented at all meetings and public comments received at all meetings will be considered by both Water Boards.
